Call for Dr. MacTaggert
Truth was, Pepper probably had a better rapport with the good doctor-- just about anybody else on the planet, Tony corrected, probably had better rapport with Moira MacTaggert-- but this wasn't something Pepper needed to be involved with. She worked well into the small hours of the morning on finance reports and thank you notes and whatever else it was Tony never realized were necessary to run a profitable business, and Tony didn't want to give Nick any more fodder to accuse him of surrounding himself with people to clean up his messes. So, a few timezones away, while Pepper hopefully slept, Tony shuffled through her contact records until he had procured the phone number he needed.
"Doctor MacTaggert? Tony Stark." Keeping the desperation from his voice was a well-practiced skill, but Tony still sounded hoarse, reminding himself enough of the hour. His watch had adjusted automatically and told him it was just after one o'clock, which meant it was closer to three in New York. His resolve broke, and the cap he had been toying with spun off to hit the floor, just to wet his throat, he told himself. The doctors had instructed "Agua," solamente, but they also had advised he stay at the hospital.
